Hypnotherapy for Anxiety

Anxious and Overwhelmed?

Is your anxiety holding you back? Two million people in the UK, are affected with anxiety and/or panic disorders. Stress is cited as the most common work related illness.

Anxiety is a natural response to real or perceived danger. It occurs when your unconscious mind is trying to protect you from what it perceives as a threatening situation, and often when you are worrying about the future.

Everyday stress is good for you because it motivates you to meet your goals at work or at home. However, if it becomes out of control, it can lead to anxiety symptoms such as panic attacks, high blood pressure, worrying, palpitations, a sense of dread, IBS, insomnia, headaches, general exhaustion, or a general loss of focus. Ongoing anxiety could also affect your personal life, lead to insomnia, IBS, comfort eating, as well as your ability to perform well at work.

­Hypnotherapy for Anxiety may help you to get the balance right between working effectively under pressure and managing your stresses. So you begin to feel in a relaxed state and back in control.

Generalized Anxiety Disorders

With Generalized Anxiety disorder, almost any situation might cause someone to feel anxious or worried, they may not remember feeling relaxed for quite some time. As soon as one bout of anxious thoughts is under control, another takes its place so they become caught in a negative thinking trap.

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety sufferers are focused on what other people will think of them. Thoughts that they are inadequate or not good enough can be very overwhelming, making these individuals feel like they cannot function normally in social situations. Anxiety-induced worries about others perceptions may lead to disastrous effects on confidence levels, self-esteem and can impact professional success if not managed.

They can leave you feeling like you have no control and produce genuine physical symptoms such as rapid increases in heartbeat or churning stomach sensations. These unpleasant bodily experiences often cause people to worry about experiencing another attack which sets off the cycle of fear all over again.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder

OCD can cause sufferers to miss out on opportunities. In extreme cases, it may even be difficult for people with OCD to maintain a job or relationships because they constantly feel the need to complete certain rituals and routines that could take up their whole day.

PTSD is a condition that occurs when someone experiences trauma and then has trouble processing or healing from it.

Hypnotherapy for Anxiety Reviews

Based on 46 Reviews

I decided to have a hypnotherapy session with Jo as I was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks for some time and the other methods I tried didn't work for me. I must say that this was without a doubt the best course of action I made so far and the best investment for my mental health. Since then I already feel more confident and calmer, and my thoughts towards anxiety changed completely and I'm approaching life with a much better and clear mind. I cannot recommend Jo enough. She is amazing at what she does.


I booked a session with Jo because my claustrophobia was getting worse and giving me a 'knot' of anxiety in my stomach that I struggled with on a daily basis. After my initial session with her, I felt so much better and that knot disappeared. On a motorbike trip, the next week I had a panic attack on the motorway - something that had never happened before. I used the techniques that Jo taught me and was able to manage my anxiety and get through the journey. In preparation for my return journey on the motorbike, I had another session with Jo specifically focusing on my journey home. It was superb. I was able to truly enjoy the 5 hour journey with no hint of anxiety and i'm excited about future travels on the bike. Highly recommend.
